House Republicans held their first impeachment inquiry hearing on Thursday to decide whether President Joe Biden should be impeached. Republicans detailed their probe into the Biden family’s economic practices, while Democrats supported the president and denied any wrongdoing.
South Carolina GOP Rep. Nancy Mace used strong language to criticize Democrats on the committee for dismissing Republican allegations of President Biden’s business connections.
Mace cited a 2017 agreement with the Chinese firm CEFC, stating that the deal involves making millions “off of granting access to Joe Biden.”
“Hunter even arranged for Joe Biden to share office space with the CCP-aligned company CEFC. My Democrat colleagues say none of this is relevant because Joe Biden wasn’t vice president while his family did these shady deals,” Mace said. “Turns out that’s complete and total bulls—. It’s a lie.”
“Biden referred to access his father as the keys to his family’s only asset. Those words are going to come back and haunt Hunter Biden and his family forever,” she added.
It’s the latest exchange in a heated hearing in which Democrats and Republicans have traded barbs over the impeachment investigation, with Democrats accusing Republicans of a lack of evidence of Biden’s malfeasance.
Republicans, for their part, have claimed that GOP-led investigations have revealed how the Biden family established over 20 shell businesses that earned more than $20 million between 2014 and 2019.
Nancy Mace has had enough of the BS:

Democrats and their allies in the media are going to have a tough time explaining away the damning evidence emerging from congressional committees investigating President Joe Biden’s alleged corruption.
The House Ways and Means Committee released new documents from IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley on Wednesday, which could spell more trouble for the Bidens and possibly for Hunter Biden’s “sugar brother” Kevin Morris, who paid the First Son’s $2.8 million tax bill and funded his lifestyle in Malibu.
As detailed by the New York Post, here are the top five revelations contained in the committee’s 1,600-word report and 31 new exhibits tabled by IRS criminal investigators Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, who allege DOJ obstruction of their five-year investigation of Hunter in Delaware:
–Uncle Jim Biden told the FBI and IRS in an interview last September that he and his nephew Hunter tried to help Chinese firm CEFC buy a US liquid natural gas facility in Louisiana — and that they did so in the knowledge that the company was directly linked to Chinese President Xi Jinping. Hunter told his uncle that CEFC chairman Ye Jianming “was a protégé of President Xi,” the FBI report says. But investigators were instructed not to ask Jim Biden if his brother, then-former Vice President Joe Biden, was involved in the ultimately unsuccessful CEFC deal or to follow “normal investigative leads,” says the committee.
–IRS public affairs officer Justin Cole emailed the chief and deputy chief of IRS criminal investigations a report of conversations between a CNN producer and Hunter Biden, in which Hunter said that he was “not willing to accept” a plea deal and that he “expected all of this ‘stuff’ would go away when his dad becomes president.”
–In another revelation, the House Committee said the FBI was investigating Morris for campaign finance violations: “These violations pertain to a wealthy Hollywood lawyer, Kevin Morris, who was enlisted to help the family, and who paid millions of dollars to help Hunter around the time that Joe Biden becomes president.” Leslie Wolf, Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, told investigators that she was not “personally interested” in the Morris investigation and that “she did not want any of the agents to look into the allegation.”
–Wolf refused multiple requests by Pittsburgh US Attorney Scott Brady to brief Delaware investigators about an FBI FD-1023 report alleging that Joe Biden was paid a $5 million bribe by an executive of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, as was his son Hunter. The allegation came from a trusted FBI confidential human source during a June 2020 interview. But Wolf “had already concluded no information from that office could be credible, stating her belief that it all came from Rudy Giuliani,” Shapley said, even though the FBI report had nothing to do with Giuliani. On October 22, 2020, the Justice Department ordered the Delaware US Attorney’s office to take the Pittsburg briefing, but Shapley said his investigators never saw the FD-1023, nor were told what it contained, despite the fact it was directly relevant to their case.
–Wolf instructed investigators seeking a search warrant of a Biden property to “erase” any mention of “Political Figure 1” — who was Joe Biden.

These damning new revelations follow the House Oversight Committee’s Tuesday revelation of two more $260,000 bank wires to Hunter Biden from Chinese nationals.
Joe Biden’s address at his palatial home in Wilmington, Delaware, was listed as the beneficiary address on the wires.
They were taken in July and August of 2019, during Joe’s presidential campaign.
Committee Chairman James Comey, a Kentucky Republican, said: “In 2020, Joe Biden told Americans that his family never received money from China. Bank records don’t lie but President Joe Biden does.”
